The manner of stopping a horse s feet Is to fill the sole so as to be on a lerel with the shoe; tow or moss should be put In dry, and water poured on it nnoe or twice a day, aocorl'nir to the moisture required. The object of stopping a horse's feet Is to Rrerent the sole becoming hard and frigid ora being too day, and so laming the horse. Some horsei require their feet to be stopped much oftenor thn others J as a general rule, stop a horse's feet the night previous to his being shoed I once a week will generally be found snfflcientj from Baturday night till Monday morning, Is a ye ry good time to spply stopping, bnt In bot summer weather twice or three times a week will not be too often. It Is sometimes the practice to anoint ths crust or wall of the foot, that Is, the part of the h'of which presents itself to the eye when the horse Is standing on his feet i whether this plan Is good or net, de pends on the foot itself. To render a rigid, strong foot elastic, the horn should be saturated with water; and to keep it elastto this should be applied before the water evaporates i while to keep a thin, weak foot hard and unyielding, without making It hrittle, an ointment should be used to prevent the absorption of water. In wet weather, a thin foot should be oiled before the horse goes out, and a strong thick foot after the horse comes In ; but dry weather, the ointment should be re newed every second cr third day. The oil usually had for this purpose Is fish oil, for anointing the hoof; but a mixture mide of equal quantities of tar, lard, oil snd bees-wax Is a better and more durable implication. Marino The nroner and timely per formance of this necessary operation Is of the utmost consequence to the well-Deing of the horse.

Oars should be taken every time the horse comes in from his work, to examine his shoes as well as his feet: for want of this it sometimes hap pens that a shoe drops off in the middle of a Journey ; not only is time thon lost, nut the foot becomes lDjurcd, and probably the horse lamed. Fast-working horses require to have the feet Dared at least once a month, without reference to whether thoy need now shoes, or not. If the horn be suffered to grow, the action of the horse becomes impeded . he cannot step out properly, or place his foot firmly on the ground ; from this rea son it is necessary, at least once a month, to pare otf the superfluous horn, unless tho horse should be one having a deficiency of horn ; In which case, he may go five weeks or even more. At i Br time, should there bo a loose or broke a nail, or a clench started, or If the horse bo cutting, call In the turner at once. The shoe, and the proper time and mode of its application varies.

Clear away the rubbish, throw tho soil, if heavy anil rich, into ridges, secure thorough drainage, and make a large and compost heap for the future. There Is no belter fertilizer for the garden than sod piled and mixed w 1th woods mold, barn yard manure with a sprinkling of plaster, and permitted to decay uutil all seeds of weeds are destroyed. Light garden soil may be benefited by an admixture of clay, but heavy soils, which are of more fre quent occurrence, may be greatly im proved by the addition of pure sand or ft light loam. Erly vegetables are ft great desideratum, aud these may be grown on the south side of ft tight board fence nr stone wall. Whitewash should be applied to the fence and tho soil at its base made rich, dry and porous. Cut off the sweep of chilling winds, and reflect the sun's rays to the soil, and the climate Is thereby mod ified sevtral degrees. Cover asparagus beds with litter to be raked off in the spring, and nrepare the ground for the very earliest sown seeds, so that the rake will quickly put it in order to receive them.

Thxrs Is no part of the farm stock more liable to be neglected tn fall than the calves whioh have been raised during the sum mer. They are often left out Ute in the season, without shelter to pick at the froien grass, and bv the time cold weather sets in, are reduced in flesh and cannot be wintered without extra nursing, and even then one or more are often lost before the time of turning to grass. Calves should enter upon cold weather tn good condition and with vigorous hearth. Shelter and an abundance or nu' trillons food should be provided so soon as grass becomes frost-bitten and poor, and sleet and ram begin to be frequent. 1 hey demand the finest and best hay grown on the farm, and thonld have in addition little oil meal, bran or oats. Hoots will be found an excellent food for calve dur ing the winter, in addition to the oil meal or bran above mentioned. Some prefer oats, say a pint or ft little more per day, to each animal.

Utiea Jlerald. Waiting for a Rise. It Is the practice of some farmers who have the means to do so. to bold on to their crops of grain and other produce If at the time they are gather d the market trice of any particular article Is much elow what It has been In former years. In some cases money Is made by this prac tice, but in the great majority of Instances we believe there is a loss, mis loss ooes not always occur from the article depre ciating In value, but from other causes. There are few farmers In the West who have tho reaulsltea for keeping their pro duce so as to insure It against waste. Their granaries cannot keep wheat as securely as the elevators In our large cities. Much grain Is lost on our farms every year by becoming heated or by getting wet. About moat larm Duimings mere are sev eral hundred rats and mice which require from fifty cents to a dollar's worth of grain per day ror their support. Again, to insure against accidental fires costs considerable money, and insurance In the country cannot bo so easily or cheaply effected as In the city. A ware house man in ft large ciry can iaae out what Is called an open policy ; and by so doing can be putting iu and taking out of his bullillng all tho lime ; wnue me larmer may be obliged to procure an insurance for six months or a year on grain, which ho will find It to his interest to dispose of in a row days. We all know that great speculations are made every year, and that splendid fortunes are acquired by holding produce for a rise. Hometimes these are tho re sults of purely accidental causes, as the springing up of foreign or domestic wars ; and in these Instances tho firmer would have as good a chance to make by the misfortunes of others, as the professional speculator does. Hut. as wo said before, these are purely accidental causes, and sue com In these Instances Is simply the result of luck. As to the other causes of the fluctuations in the market price of pro. duce, as those depending on the stringency In the supply of curiency, tho city dealer has much better opportunities of forming correct opinions than the farmer has. He Is well posted up In all "the tricks of the trade," and Is by education much better acquainted with the laws that govern the supply and demand, than the producer Is. There aro local causes of chango In the produce market, that every farmer can lako advantage of. If he, by chsnce or good management, has mined a superior crop of an article that has generally failed In his neighborhood, he will know that it is to his advantage not to send his surplus sunnlv away, whore It will come In com- petition with that which is produced In parts of the country where good crops arc the rule and not the exception. Hu Ill keep his crop at home, save hi freight, and " make the margin" which It costs to bring produce to supply the community where ho lives, lie win sen to ins neigu bora who are among " the shorts." Those men about the country who have raised good crops of potatoes or apples mis year. will find It to their advAntHga to loon, lor a home market for these articles, and can afford to wnlt till tholr neighbors have eaten up their small supply. As a rule when there has been a small crop of any article the previous year, the farmer will find it to his advantNgo to get off his crop as soon as possible ami to rush it into tho market. On this account the grain raiser in Missouri and Houthurn 1111 nois always una a great advantage over the farmer of WUcoiulu and Minnesota when ft plentiful harvest follows a season of scarcity. Mo, too tho northern grain producer whose crop is necessarily nar vpsti'il lnt. will In the Years of nlentv or dlnarlly find an ad vantage in holding back his supplies till the market has ceased to be glutted, provided he has the requisite buildings ter storing It. Those tanners who speak with regret at having sold their crops on particular year, lor less than they could have reamed for them afterward, can rind consolation in the condition of those who sold tholr spring wheat early In the fill for (I HO in stead of keeping It for three months, and then only gelling f l.M tor it. They can see, loo, the lolly ot tue YV Isoona'.u nop- raisers, who refused 00 cents lor their hops last full, and now are compelled to sell them for 15 cents. Vm its Fiiruur.

Mix one pound of sulphur, one pound of rosin and two pounds of fenugreek, and give two tableepoonfuls every second or third night, by shaking It among the feed or giving It lu any masn the noise is fund or. Four ounces of antimony mixed lih the above, and giving one lablespoonful, will give an Increased lustre to the skin aud will Improve the very worst looking brute In existence. The exercise should be chiefly walklug no violent sweating and no long lourueya. To keep horses in condition for ma vork, and for any work where the pace doe not exceed five or six miles per hour, they can be turuud on grass In summer, but should have oats morning, noon and evening, and ft little bay too at noon ; quantity of oats to be given will depend good deal on the stale of the grass the liorse live on, and also the nature ot the work. Itegular, steady work is best ; lor, though one rest day Is very well, when number of Idle days come together the horses sweat extra, and lose more on the first day at work agalu,;than they gained by the prolouged ret. When In the stable on dry food entirely, torus farmers recommend clover bay made from clover cut when the seed be gins to shed, but this is very wrong; for that kind of hay U woody fa the stems, and it has not oulv greatly li. lured tha land by standing till it was too old, but has ft decidedly injurious effect on the horses producing coughing', heaves. welled heels and legs, and often inflanv matlon In the eyas. The only way which it can be given without dire result, Is by cutting it into chaff and wetting it servsd tfius, ftac tome mstu mixed wiio there ars those in the country who will call it "the perfection of hay."

In almost all herds of cows will be found some animals whose milk is drawn with a great and painful expenditure of muscle when no disposition to now up is manifest. The caune is generally found In a detective formation of the teats, the milk di:cU belns? obstructed or contracted. A correspondent of the Aets JCngtnnd Ifonuiteml states that he had ft valuable young cow that milked so hard from hind teats as to make the operation slow and very fatiguing to the milker. He adds s " By t he aid of a probe I ascertained that tha nhatrnrtion was at the lower end of the teat ; I therefore thought ft little snrirlcal skill mlo-ht remove the evlL I took very narrow-bladcd knife, gave It . - . . .. .

Another voung cow that came of the above-mentioned bad lost one-quarter of her bag, add milked so hard from one teat that the stream oi mua was no larger uian small knitting-needle. With the same success 1 operated upon mat. iney milked afterwards as easily as anyone could desire, end no leaking or me mug followed. " To Make Sausage. A good sausage grinder Is almost as es sential to ft well ordered kitchen as coffee mill. The proportion of fat meat to lean will depend somewhat on the taste of different people, but there should In all cases be a sufficient amount Of fat in them to supply what Is needed In cooking. If the pork you design for sausage contains too little lean, you can suppiv tue ueu elenev bv adding beef, which Is lets ox pensive, and wnicn lorms wun ins pom - . . . . . . . mixture which la preferred by many to pork alone. The most difficult nart of sausage mak Ing Is the seasoning. Many housewives have no rule about it, out add some sail, and pepper, and sage ; cook a sample find It is not seasoned highly enough, and try It over again ; finally, from too little seasoning, the maker manages to get In too much, for having tasted for some time the substances used, their flavor Is not so distinct as at first. An excellent propor tion for the seasoning la to add to one bun dred pounds of chopped meat, two ana hall pounua oi nne sail, ten ounces hlack nenncr. and eight ounces of w dried sago leaves. It is preferable to buy the whole pepper corns, and to grind them at home, a ground pepper Is often adul terated, and always loses lis sirengtn auer being ground. Hsgo also oiten deterio rates bv exposure to the air and moisture but if it Is In good condition, the above proportion will be most acceptable to tne majority of tastes. It is true that there are some persons who prefer other horbs besides sage, such as summer savory and thymo, and there are a few who relish spices of various kinds ; but where sausages are to be made to suit tho tastes or several persons, we must be careful not to add any substance that will offend the taste of any one. All the ingredients should be thoroughly mixed together, stuffed In skins or bags made ol cotton clot n, or pi ace a in snauow earthen dishes. Their flavor is better after they have been made some days, than It is Immediately after they are mailo. Prairi Winner. A Short Rule to Measure Grain. An exohangosays: ' It is convenient to fanners and purchasers to have an easy and correct rule by which to measure corn in cribs. Here Is one: Having leveled the corn In the crib, measure the length, breadth and depth, and multiply them to gether, and deduct from the product one ft fill, and you have the number of bushels In tho ear; for shelled corn take one-half. Tot)e strictly correct, add half bin bol for every one hundred. Persons who are fond of cyphering can tost the correctness of this rule by taking 1,878 solid inches for a foot, ftnd 3,150 inches In a bushel, and see that the latter Is nearly ono-flflh larger than Ihe former." Collecting Manure. Tint collection ftnd application of ma nure should go on continually, for the grasses and cereals and all kinds of culti vated plants make an annual draft on the soil for the ingredients which enable them to build up their stems, foliage and feeds. Ho liquid or solid suited for enriching the soil, should be allowed to go to loss about tho homestead.

Cahk Is essential for the proper wluter lug of any kind of stock, but especially r qutsite in the case of colts. Some allow colts to struggle on among cattle and sheep and store hogs, deeming them com petent to fight their own way through, no matter how rough their treatment may bo, nor how much they may be robbed at the staled periods of feeding. They, besure, when thus treated, manage to worry through, but it la at the expense o that development which the season should bring to them. The aim should be, when colts are weaned, to keep them from fall ing away in flesh, but this cannot be ac complished by hap-hasard management. They require shelter during storms, and suitable food and plenty ot it, till the re turn of the season of verdure shall enable thein to range In search oi that congenial to them and promotive of their develop ment.

The institution, for a private asylum, was a moderately large one, and was sit uated about two miles from a flourishing town, In the midst of a fruitful and pic- tnresquo country. This particular branch of the profession possessed for me, ss It did for my s-.tpcrlor, a strong attraction, to that it was with no conaclousnes of any sacrifice on my part that I accepted his offer to become one of his assistants. There were six of us altogether, that Is, Including our principal and at the time or my entering tne institution, aooui nuy patients. Our regulations excluded from admission such applicants as were In the advanced stages of Insanity, admitting only those cases of a milder form of the disease; although it not unirtquenuy nap nenod. in spite or the unucnistny excel ent treatmont they received, that patients became worse during their stay; and those who, at the time they were admit ted, evinced only symptoms of slight aber ration, before very long, developed them stronger and more decidedly. This, it has always been my opinion, Is one ot the characteristics ot the malady. A person a filleted with any mental de rangement Is liable, at almost any moment, to a suddenly aggravated condition or tne disease. You may say It Is so with all complaints, no matter of what nature. U ranted, put that only proves it to te the case with the one in Question, and 1 tninK more so by comparison than other, I speak of sudden changes, understand : not gradually developed ones, to wnioh every Urease known to science Is equally liable. 1 bad been upwards or two years tn tne institution, and bad seen something of every case treated there. In that time we had one hundred and thirty patients, rortv.threa of whom were discharged cured in less than a year ( six had died of disorders associated with the malady for which they were under treatment ; nine had been removed by their friends, and balance remained under our care. I peak of the time between my entering the institution as an assistant physician, and the time of my receiving a brief note from iV ancle, a wealthy retired merchant of New York. The note will speak for it self more directly than if I endeavored to explain its purport t it Is as follows : "Drar Nephew Recent indications of a disordered mental condition in your cousin Archibald have decided me, with the advice and concurrence of our family physician, Doctor Bltterdrug, to send him to a private asylum ; and nearing good re ports of the one with which you are con nected.

He appeared to In good health generally : shook me cor dially by the baud, asked few questions, and altogether comported himself In manner perfectly consistent with a sound mental condition. Doctor Bltterdrug, who was a fussy little man, forever rub bing together his Insignificant little hands, of whose whiteness he was exceedingly vain, and the man Caleb, remained over with us until the next day, when they de parted for the city on the first train bound southward. The apartments reserved for tho use my cousin Archibald were two rooms, sleeping and silting room, on the second floor, not far from the one tn which I my self slept. He seemed much pleased with their comfortable aud orderly appearance, and was evidently under tho impression, semi doubtful one, that he was at a hotel or large boarding-house, where it would be advisable for his health that he should spend the summer season. This idea he had imbibed, of course, from remarks thrown out by his frieudi and Doctor Bltterdrug ; and this idea, also, it was ad visable to encourage without appearing purposely to do so, for there wss no telling how soon his suspicions might be aroused, If they were not already so, as was indi cated by the following conversation that took place the morning alter bis arrival: "And how was It, Fred," he asked me, " that you came to go into this busi ness?

Think of tbatf A snug little fortune, eh T Made a clean sweep or me, Clean to a nonar. But that wasn't the worst of It, Fred You knew I was engaged to Clara Nelson? Nof Ob, I forget you've been away from New York for some time. Well, I wss ; the handsomest girl you ever set eyes on, Fred, but well I won't say. She jilted me, Fred, Jilted me when she understood d lost my money t went pack on me alto gether. They say she d done the same thing with others without their losing any mony at all ; but I don't believe it, for she was engaged to me, and to no one else that ever I knew. When I sold my horses, the two greys, they were a spank ing team and no mistake, All Inside of six months, Fred ; and most of it in Erie and Fort Wayne." This Is a brief synopsis of Archibald Earle's communication; long, rambling and difcursive, as it was, I ran give here but the leading points, which are quite sufficient. It appeared then that there were two causes, the loss of riches and the loss of a wife that had served to unsettle mv cousin's reason, but one of those causes was the consequence of the other. Which operated most strongly upon him was a question that addressed itself at once to me, although to tne question i cau no answer, and tor the cause ltst-ir no remedy. I could neither restore to bim his wealth, nor alter toe rejection oi mm bv his lady love. I could see that Archie's vanity bad been considerably piqued by this last, ana with very excellent reason, for he was a splendid looking fellow ; tall. powerfully built, wun a great neaa oi thick, brown curls, and long, yellow, side whiskers that were enough In themselves to sxcite the envy of many a less fortunate Adonis. deveral weeks went by. and except for the rambling nature of his conversation at times, and the slightly wild, unsettled look ot his eye wnen talking aooui ms losses and the girl who jilted him, I should certainly have concluded that there was mistake somewhere and that my cousin's entire sanity was a matter beyond question. As it was I trusted that time would do everything toward restoring that perfect balance which alone appeared wanting, to mis euect i wrote nis tatner when Archibald had been only a week at the Institution, and the oli gentleman ap peared much relieved on learning my opinion, backed as it was by that of Doc tor uraineL But now comes that part of my recital that will go to prove what I have already said respecting cases oi insanity, it so happened one morning of the third week of my cousin's stay, that a patient i ccu pying the same floor, who had exhibited, for tome time back, rather alarming symp toms, became suddenly violent, and had to be removed irotn his room to one oi an other kind set apart for emergencies like this. Of courso this could not be done wl hout some little noise and disturbance, which was deemed at all times udvlsable. should be kept as much as possible from the knowledge ot the others, nut this was not always an easy task. There was sure to be some on cognizant of the trans action whom we would rather had not been. This happened to be the cose on this particular occasion with Archibald Earle. When tho removal had been accom plished, loud and repeated ringings at his bell summoned me to his apartment, and it was with leelings ot anxiety that 1 went thither. Arrived there, these were for the moment entirely dispelled by the calm, even cheerful expression of his face, and the hearty greeting he extended to mo. " Come in, old fellow ; confounded row you're having this morning ; what's it all I had no sooner entered than he closed and locked the door, put the key into his pocket, and turned upon me with an expression the very reverse of that had worn a few moments before. "Why, what's the matter, Archy?" asked. "The matter," he replied; "Til just show you what is tho matter. - Bit down there I pointing to a chair; "and don't get up till I toll you." I took tho chair indicated, thinking by so doing to concili ate him, but far from it ; he was evidently vory much worked up about this same " row " that ho spoke of, and 1 was very desirous of soothing him, and. If possible, allaying any suspicions he might have the true character ot the institution. " Now, then," said he alter a moment's pause, taking up a position directly front of me. " the matter is this don't at tempt to deny It you keep an asylum the insane. That's what yon do here, and you know It All that about a water cure Is mere sham and nonsense." " You're mistaken, Archy," I exclaimed. " Don't attempt to deny it. sir." he terrupted ; " I've found vou out. You have deceived me ; so has my father ; has old Bltterdrug; but lit be even with you all. aud wi'h you first." Ho had fastened the door of his room, as I have already said. We were at the far end the hall, his apartments being the opening on a b ng corridor running east and west, his front windows looking to south, and those at the side to the west. I might call, and call in vatn in case one happened to be In thit part of house or grounds; besides I should only betray a fear of him by any such proceed ing, and so relinquish what advantage might otherwise have. " I've lieen roped Into this," he raid, and his features began to assume a settled vin dictive expression ; " snd enticed out here to be domiciled with lunatics ; but, as said before, I'll be even with you. Fort Way no and Lrie to the contrary notwith standing " here he laughed a short laugh, and da w from an irside pocket a razor, which he slowly and deliberately opened. Great . Heavens I how the sight of that sharp Instrument caused the chills to run through me. it had never tor a moment occurred to me his possessing such weapon, for he had eutin ly neglected beard while In the institution. With a degree of cooluets and method singularly out of keeping with his former excueu uiauuer, ne proceeueu, wuii eye closely watching my movements while, to carefully sharpen tho razor, pausing every now and then to try edge by drawing it across a hair, which got from hi own head by running fingers once or twice each time through his thick chestnut curia. I sat watching all this preparation with mingled feelings H would be impossible ine to describe, rapidly turning over my mind the chances or escape I confess that to lump through the window, with fall of about fifty feet into the court-yard at the side of ihe house, where a broken leg and possibly a broken neck, awaited me, ot to disarm trty adversary wero only two that offered themselves the teeming equally practicable with other. Eveu if I had been my cousin's equal In size and strength normally, possessed in hU then condition, if retUted, a certain abnormal power that would have to be overcome, and this, taking uo account of the rasor whatever. " Doyoualwaysshave yourself, Archy I asked with a tremendous effort to appear at ease, aud hoping to divert his thoughts Into another rhaiiuel, for I had no doubt was bis intention to kui uia py cutting throat. " l'v shaved myself for th last nln years," h replied in rather a surly tone, " but this morning I'm going to shave Fred Eaton ; excuse me, Doctor Eaton Frederick Eaton. M. D., first assistant Dr. Eraslus CraniaL proprietor of asylum for the insane at Mlddleuort, ha, ha i t m going to anave vour nead, air, and have you put la a s'rafght jacket you're a lunauo of th first water ; but vou resla, air, or move while I eia forming th operation IU cut your throat from ear to ear." Well, her was an ordeal to go through. It was some relief to know that It was his iuteutton to cut my throat at without auy if about it, but to have head shaved and to be taken for a lunatic myself by the visitors, to have to wear wig, great Heaveust Aud then there a ferocity ia his eye which left no doubt hit Intention to carry out his threat In cas I resisted. "It will 1 neces'ary," he observed, " first to 1 it her you unless you prefer a dry shsve "this he said without moving a rnnsclo and with perfect serlouonefs. " Oh, not at all," 1 answered, a sensa tion of falntncss coming over mo with the words. " Throw your head well back, said he, at the ssmo time laying his razor awe and tsking up tho brush. As he Advanced toward mo, cup and brush In hand, I made a sudden spring at him out of the chair In which 1 sit. ihe suddenness or the at tack, combined with the additional vigor lent me by the desperate circumstances in which I found mytelf, served for the mo ment to overcome him, snd with a tre mendous crash, upsetting a small table In the centre of the room, we both Went rol ling upon the floor ; I, as luck would have it, fulling on top. It required all the strength I was capable of to maintain my portion and keep shouting for help; If as sistance didn't arrive soon I knew I must be overpowered. Even as this thought passed through my mind, I felt myself being gradually overcome, l had last noid of his necktie, which. In the absence of a collar, bo wore tied loosely about his throat. His left arm was round my waist, his right across my back, the flogcrs of his right hand firmly grasping my shoulder, and ho was slowly but surely turning me under. At that moment I heard steps ap proaching from the staircase in the centre of the corridor. Nearer and nearer they came : now they were a few feet off; now close outside the door, now the handle was tried ; then loud raps sounded on the panel. With one gigantic effort he succeeded in completely overpowering me, disengaging himself entirely from my hold. Almost tsntilcblv I snrsnir to mv feet, fearing an attack with the razor. Just then the door was ODeced bv one of those outside hav ing a pass key. A sudden cry Issued from the lips of the foremost of them, and the heavy fall of something in the opposite corner to where the door was caused me to glance in that direction. " Qreat God !" I exclaimed ; there lay Archibald Earle with a wide gash in his throat, and tho blood running from it into a pool upon the floor, where lay the razor, the blade and handle smeared with the crimson life-cur rent. We lifted him from where he lay, my self and one or two others, and proceeded to examine the wound and to staunch the flow of blood. The cut was a deep and wide one, but fortunately the carotid artery had escaped all contact with the razor. With proper care and nursing the patient would recover. He did recover, not only from the wound, but likewise his reason; afore gone conclusion with me from the mo ment I examined the cut, and saw that there was every reason to hope for a con tinuance of his life. My own hands trembled so from my recent exertions that it was impossible for me to dress the wound, but this was performed skillfully and well by another. I have only to add that my cousin Archibald has since re trieved his ill fortuno upon Wall street, aud Is the dovoted hustiand of a very happy wife ; not hU former lady love, who so heartlessly lilted him, but one pos sessing equal charms of person, and, I am of opinion, more Bterung qualities oi nean, RAILWAY ITEMS, &C. he I of in for in so of last the no the I I a his nu the its he his for in a the one the he ?" it my vou, ; to ha. ; if per not once my a was of A new railroad from Amerlcut Ilawkinsville, Oa., is proposed.

Tbey also announce impor tant reduction In prices, offering their aneaualed Organs at prices which are even less than those commonly demanded for inferior .workmanship. This Is the natural result of their greatly increased facilities for manufacture, and fixed rule to sell at smallest profit.

Power of a Growing Tree. is its 15 tho the It Walton Iiall, England, had at one time its own corn mill, and when that incon venient necessity no longer existed, mill stone was laid by in an orchard and forgotten. The diameter of this circniar stone measured five feet and a half, while Its depth averaged seven inches through out ; its center hole had a diameter eleven inches. By mere' accident, some bird or squirrel had dropped tho fruit the filbert tree through tho hole on earth, and in 1813 the seedling was seen rising up through that unwonted channel. As its trunk gradually grew through this aperture and increased, its power to rsise the ponderous mass of stone was specu lated on by many. Would the filbert tree dio in the attempt t Would it burst millstone 1 or would it lift it up f In end, the little filbert tree lifted the mill stone, and in 1803 wore it like a crinoline about iu trunk ; and Mr. Waterton used sit upon it under the branching shade.

It is easier to teach and learn from, and secures more rapid and thorough progress. As a self instructor it is the best book, and as a collection of gems from the best composers, selected by William Mason, it has peculiar value, and should be owned by every one who has a piano-forte.
